Need landscape plant suggestions and/or designers for association
Our association is looking into redoing our landscaping. In the interest of the drought, we want to go drought resistant and remove areas of lawn but need to maintain a lush, Mediterranean look. So that means dense color and green, so strict xeriscaping won't work. Because of the size of the landscape, we want low maintenance plants/succulents for both shade and sun areas. Can anyone suggest some plants that would work in Orange County? Also, cost is a concern so expensive plants are a no-go.
Finally, if anyone knows any good landscape designers in my area who can create a drought tolerant yet lush (not overly grassy) look, let me know.
